I took a lesson today from one of my students. She said she was going to get after me for the same things that I get after her for.
So it went like this:
Ali: Stop looking at her head.
Me: If I don't look at her head how can I tell when she is going to buck me off?
Ali: Just ignore the bad behavior and ride.
Me: IGNORE IT!? How the ____ do I ignore this?
Ali: Just make her do it.
Me: What do you think I'm trying to do up here?
I am going to have to rethink what I say in lessons.
Seriously, eyes on the ground are the key to working through problems.
